The sell-off in the Swiss Franc in Asia pushed the USD/CHF to a 13-month high of 0.9718 - which is also the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the fall from the 2000 high to 2011 low.
The one-month 25-delta risk reversal has jumped to minus 0.625; its highest level since May 15. The one-month ATM volatility is also hovering at the highest level since May.
This indicates the rally has legs and it is only a matter of time before the resistance offered by 0.9718 (23.6% Fib) is taken out. The 14-day RSI has turned bullish as well.
